Beethoven: Piano Concertos 1 & 2
Volume 1 of the Beethoven piano concerto series
MMT2050
Released 2003
One of New Zealand's favourite pianists gives a compelling account of Beethoven's first two piano concertos, in a live recording with the Christchurch Symphony. The first two concertos showcases Beethoven's unprecedented dynamism like much of his early music. Beethoven first performed these concertos and used them as a vehicle for launching his career. The featured soloist in this series is celebrated Canadian-born pianist Diedre Irons.
Beethoven: Piano Concertos 3 & 4
Volume 2 of the Beethoven piano concerto series
MMT2051
Released 2004
The complete cycle of Beethoven's piano concertos continues with this live recording of the third and fourth concertos. The third concerto is directly inspired by Mozart's own C minor concerto. However, the fatalism which pervades much of Mozart's work is transformed into the sternly heroic in Beethoven. Inspired more from his own music, it has been suggested that Beethoven's fourth concerto depicts Orpheus taming the Furies. The featured soloist in this series is celebrated Canadian-born pianist Diedre Irons.
